6:21 am
tomorrow. in fact, 8 degrees above average in oakland, as well as santa rosa. san jose coming in a couple degrees above the average. so with more sunshine today it should be a pretty nice afternoon. we are looking at a couple elements allowing for this warmup. one is high pressure. it's building into the eastern pacific. it is allowing for a slight offshore flow. that's bringing not only the off show flow here but gusty winds into southern california where in san diego they do have a fire weather watch. so sunshine here today and tomorrow it's going to be pretty nice. but by wednesday we see the cloud cover and rain along the sonoma county coast. not a lot of rain. it's a cold system. but mild temperatures today and the next couple days out ahead of it. 63 sacramento, 74 calm springs. low 60s for richmond and san francisco. everyone else mid-60s from livermore and san jose. watsonville, no day there for the tree lighting at 5:00.

6:48 am
morning. live doppler 7hd shows a veil of high, thin clouds. it should stay quiet for the next several days. but by tuesday night it could be picking up some returns. 39 in concord right now. it is cool in parts of our east and north bay valleys with upper 30s napa and santa rosa. a little fog by napa, as well, with 45 in oakland. 50 in san jose. you are warmer. look at the 57 half moon bay. 24 hours ago we were chillier. in fact if you are waking up in fremont and livermore, you will notice that the chill in the air and not quite as significant. a little warmer in redwood city, as well as san francisco. so starting out with a few clouds around and some fog in the north bay. otherwise warmer conditions today and tomorrow. we will be well into the 60s. in fact, some areas county could
